(Neb.)-Chadron 8th Graders Share Reading With Younger Students
(Chadron)-Oh the thinks you can think! Imagination is a wonderful thing that is often encouraged by reading. One of the best imaginations to touch the world of literacy was Theodore Giesel, also known as Dr. Seuss. Chadron Middle School Principal Nick Dressel shared in his blog at chadronschools.org that Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss.
Over the past three years, 8th graders at ChadronMiddle School have celebrated Read Across America Day by going to ChadronPrimary School, ChadronIntermediateSchool, and the ChildDevelopmentCenter to read books to the children. This year, Read Across America Day fell on a Sunday, so CMS 8th graders read to students at CIS on Friday and to students at CPS and the CDC on Monday.
Dressel said that ChadronMiddle School would like to thank CIS, CPS, and the CDC for allowing the 8th graders to share their love of reading with the students.
